Apart from food, shelter and clothing, Virlanie provides children with opportunities to study, finds ways to try to re-unite children with their families (if they are capable of caring for the children), and endeavors to give children psychological intervention, and assistance with their legal cases.
Virlanie, through the help of individuals, organizations and companies provides nutritious meals for all 240 babies, toddlers and children, formal schooling and educational support and psycho-social developmental activities.
Why support Virlanie?
Virlanie is unique in that the foundation is not a center – it’s a home. A home where the prevailing atmosphere is that of a family. It has a father, mother and aunts who care for and provide formation to the children.
For street children, this home called Virlanie has been able to change the lives of many young people who otherwise, would have stayed in the streets, and would have not developed into responsible individuals. Consider this: In the last three years, Virlanie has re-united 368 children with their families, progressed 97 young adults to independent living and help 10 children to get adopted. Data shows that, of the above, 235 are still with their families, 83 are working and 45 are still studying.
Virlanie is one of the largest non-sectarian, non-profit organizations in the country that cares for street children. It has cared for more than 11,000 children in the last 16 years.
Virlanie welcomes financial donations and in-kind support from individuals, corporations and donor institutions. . It also appreciates the dedication and hard work of volunteers. The foundation sees the value of people as resources and therefore accepts short and long term volunteers to help care for the children.
